I've read for hours on the cspia site and so much of it can be interpreted in different ways. I just wish they would write it in terms the average human can comprehend. My true good friends keep telling me this is for the big companies, I just wish I could believe them and not be so stressed out about it. I just had and incredible craft show, making enough to get my family through the winter and now I'm looking at hiring an attorney to help me understand this. Really, I wasn't counting on having to fork over that money. This all just really is a pain in the ass.
I totally get the whole under 12 and such, but a hair bow? or for that matter a onesie with a ribbon sewed on to it. I have a whole boutique with nothing but handcrafted items. I am going to be out of business and the rest of my lease. This is crazy. My dh is seeking leagl advice on this. I'm going to forget I even read this, it has been e56 nothing but extra stress for me! I'm going to use myself as a model and sell my bows to adults now!
